MiDEAL Extended Purchasing Program

About MiDEAL

MiDEAL is the State of Michigan's extended purchasing program that allows Michigan cities, townships, villages, counties, school districts, universities, colleges, and nonprofit hospitals to buy goods and services from state contracts. The program is authorized by Michigan Legislation and has existed since 1984. Members benefit directly from the reduced cost of goods and services and indirectly by eliminating the time needed to process bids. There are approximately 500 contracts available to MiDEAL members. 

Learn more about the MiDEAL Advantage on our About MiDEAL page.

Vendors are not eligible to join MiDEAL and can only participate in the program if they have a State of Michigan contract. Learn more in the Vendor Center.
